I Want a Gun

Posted on Monday, April 26th, 2004

Dave!I should preface this entry with the disclaimer that I abhor violence... I really do. I think that anybody who resorts to violence is pretty damn stupid because they couldn't find a better solution. That being said, I am at the end of my rope and want a gun. But, unlike most gun-toting morons that end up in the news for shooting somebody for no good reason at all, I actually have a good reason...

I want to blow away all the morons who don't understand the concept of KEEP RIGHT EXCEPT TO PASS.

Here's a typical scenario... I'm driving home from Seattle yesterday and SEVERAL TIMES come across this:

Car Shot

The dumbass is driving in the PASSING LANE but is NOT PASSING ANYBODY!! They're in the WRONG lane and won't move over (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW) because they are just too damn ignorant to know their left from their right. People like this are too stupid to be driving... probably too stupid to be living, and so I think it should be within my legal right to take care of the situation with a big-ass gun. If I have to pass your lame ass on the right, then you deserve to have your shit ruined...

Car Shot

Furthermore, if they are in the wrong lane AND driving under the speed limit then not only should they be taken out... but I should be able to hunt down their entire family because this is obviously some sort of genetic defect that should be eliminated for the good of society.

"KEEP RIGHT EXCEPT TO PASS" is pretty self-explanatory, so what's the problem? As usual, it boils down to people being stupid. Isn't it about time we do something about this ever-growing problem on America's highways?

UPDATE: I was e-mailed a link devoted to exposing and reporting "Left Lane Dicks!" Not only that, but a quick Google search reveals all kinds of rants by people fed up with these morons. Apparently I am not alone.

UPDATE: Was just sent a link to an excellent site, which allows you to see if your state has lane laws like Washington. Visit "Drive Right, Pass Left".

    I agree with you 100% Actually make that 150% .. speaking of which.. are you allowed to “undertake” people in the usa? I know it’s illegal in the UK, but it’s legal here. And what’s the law on “right turn on red permitted after stopping?” Is it on all intersections, or just ones labelled, or does it depend on the state?

  2. Dave2 says:

    We get a “free right” after a stop on ANY red light (or stop sign) if the intersection is clear (it doesn’t have to be posted)… we also get a “free left” from a two-way to a one-way if the intersection is clear. I don’t know about “undertaking” as I am not sure what that’s about?

  3. kazza says:

    undertaking is what you have to do if some twat is hogging the fast lane, and so you have to around them on the outside lane. It’s legal to do it here, but apparently it’s illegal in the UK.

    Was that on the pass? I hate that. Especially on Blewett when there’s a passing lane and the other car is staying in the left lane.

  5. Dave2 says:

    Yep, on Blewett… but mostly on Snoqualmie where sometimes there are FOUR lanes of traffic to drive in, but you STILL end up with slow drivers in that far-left lane! As for “undertaking” — I’m not sure if passing on the right is legal or illegal, but I do it all the time!

  6. Michelle says:

    I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve been pulled over on Blewett. One time, I apparently passed a “marked police vehicle” and didn’t slow down after I passed him. Oops. It was a regular pick-up, how was I to know… for all the times I’ve been pulled over on the pass, though, I’ve only had one ticket. =)

    Couldn’t agree with you more. I have had a website up for a number of years now based on this, DriveRightPassLeft.com. On it you can see what the law is in your state and I have various instructional materials to let others on the road know how you feel.
